Is there a convention for naming writters and readers?  ie functions to set 
(or read) the value of a private variable within an object. eg Java tends to 
call them setSomething and getSomething.

Are there any basic differences in writing a makefile for C++ than for C?  

I know that many companies have strong conventions about makefiles.  Do you 
have any comments on good makefiles?
